An 18-year-old who is not vaccinated for chicken pox has sued the Northern Kentucky Health Department and a slew of other defendants after he claims he was told he couldn’t play basketball for Assumption Academy.
Jerome Kunkel, of Union, Ky., is listed as the plaintiff. He is a senior at Assumption Academy, a private Catholic school in Walton, Ky., and has played basketball there since 2015.
According to the lawsuit, Kunkel is a practicing Catholic who rejects the use of any vaccine that is “derived from aborted fetal cells” as they are “immoral, illegal, and sinful.” As a result, he has never received the Varicella Vaccine, or the chicken pox vaccine.[more at article]
I will say, I’m impressed with the access to legal assistance that Northern Kentucky Catholic boys seem to have.
